    Pros

    Northern Trust is a very conservative firm so I'm not worried about losing my job any time soon even in these rough economic times.

    Cons

    Northern Trust is a very conservative firm so you have to put in a lot of time to work your salary up. Many of the older employees don't respect younger employees like they should. Development of young talent is also VERY lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Management should work on developing internal talent and not be so afraid to cut dead weight when appropriate. It takes a lot for even the most imcompetent employees to lose their job.
